Give Rap a Try!

This feels like the ultimate haiku challenge—create a rap that is based on the structure of a haiku. Haiku is not supposed to rhyme, but I am deviating, experimenting to see where this takes me.

Last Tuesday I discussed the poet June Jordan. She creates simple poetic raps. Listen to one of her poems in the book His Own Where.

Here is my rap-like haiku.

The Cold Midwest Haiku

the midwest is cold
bundle up…try to be bold
go brave the icy road

 Give Rap a Try!

Let me know what you think of my first rap haiku!

Have a great week!
